Hi all,
I'm having problem trying to install the sims 3 ambitions.  it keeps asking me to insert disk 1 which contains the file Caches/twinbrook.  I downloaded all the sims 3 packs from here.  Please can you help as i love playing sims 3.
Thanks xx

Hello,


Did you extract it with winRAR?

I did yes. I have redownloaded it and turned off my internet security to see if that works.  I will post on here if it works or not

Also, make sure that ALL contents from the Ambitions.rar file are extracted into one single, freshly-created folder. Once the extraction is done, please navigate into that folder again and try resuming the installation.

Good luck !

You're welcome. Smile  I'd also recommend you backup the installer for Ambitions (just like any game/software installer) on e.g. an external hard-drive or something similar, so that in case you need to re-install Windows, you don't have to re-download it again.

Have fun for now, and if you need more support, feel free to open a new topic. Problem solved, topic closed.
